          is there any sort of clear coat on the wheels that would make them easier to clean as well?

                    I'm not an experienced dipper (yet) but i detail and correct auto paint for a living. As Thomas said it does make a difference as to what type of brake pads you have....now i can't say how this will work on plasti-dip because i don't know how chemically resistant it is, but Meguiar's sells a product called Wheel Brightener....it IS acidic so...do a test spot first if you do try to use it. You dilute it down 4:1...but still, its strong stuff.

                    The other option that works awesome for brake dust is called Optimum Power Clean. It's more surface friendly but still a very powerful cleaner. It too can be diluted down but full strength = sweetness. Just be sure to work in the shade while your wheels are cool. Also you may find that using a soft tipped brush or Wheel Woolies work better at loosening the grit. The Woolies are mainly for wheel barrels but are AWESOME...even at that price..worth every penny IMO.

                      Did you work in the shade? Did you allow the product to dry on the surface? You may want to consider doing a re-rinse on the entire car first to help remove the loose dirt (just like washing a car that has factory paint), then spraying 1 panel at a time...washing it...and then rinsing it...and continuing. That way you aren't letting a chemical sit so long that it actually has a chance to dry (and thus stain) the paint. Again, as i said in my post above, not a dip pro but...having spent 1000's of hours of my life detailing cars....ive learned sometimes small things make a big difference.

                      One more note, id also be sure you don't let the water sit and dry on the car either...not sure how PD reacts to it but on paint...its a quick way to get water spot etching/fading.

                        If you need something that works better than Simple Green try PDcleaner its much better at removing built up brake dust, the foam breaks up tough set-in stains. Heres a video of it

                          I believe its illegal to sell a chemical without a label. Looks to me like foaming bathroom cleaner that you ripped the label off of.

                            I used some a half of a pump of simple green wp_20140627_11_52_28_pro.jpg on black matte dip (whole car dipped about 8 months ago). The area that I sprayed now has a white haze where I sprayed it. WTF?!? I just washed my car about an hour before hand and was just working to get a drip of sap off. Any ideas?

                            UPDATE:
                            Just tried washing that area again with dipwash and distilled water, "white stain" is still there.

                              Windex FTW. Though nothing cleans dip like Pre-Dip spray. I swear I scuff my rocker panel every time I get in my car with black dress shoes. Pre-Dip takes it right off. ***** pre-dip does NOT. That's how you know DYC makes the good stuff
